I love old places like that. Nicely done. The only modern thing I see is the stop sign, and the electric meter.
Thanks, Old Places like this make you wonder what sort of history has gone on around it! You are correct two things spoiled the periodness of the shot! Thanks for the visit!

Lovely photo. I am a mono fan and love this.

To me, the clarity of the image is the real tell-tale that this is recent.

But I thought it would be fun to look for clues in the photo itself. The dark (red) stop sign is a tip-off that it is after the mid-fifties, not from an earlier time. The stick-on characters on the mailbox are another clue and probably place it at least in the late seventies, early eighties. There is also an electric meter, but I don't know when they started being used so that clue was marginal, at best, for me.

Again, very nicely finished.

Thanks for the comment. Don, yep there are a couple of clues that might give away the period of the photo but its fun to capture some like this every now and again! Thanks for the visit!!
